If you or your families are concerned about your financial situation going into this shutdown, please be aware many military friendly banks are offering service members no interest loans to ease this burden. If you require financial assistance the Keesler AFB Airman & Family Readiness Center's Military One Source and MFLC are unaffected by the shutdown. We highly encourage that families DO NOT seek payday loans during this time.
Airmen attending initial technical training at Keesler will be unaffected. All other TDY service members should consult with their chain of command with regards to their reporting instructions.
We encourage everyone to engage and remain in contact with their chain of command throughout this process. We will continue to update this post and page with all new information. Our team will be monitoring this page and inbox if there are any questions or concerns.
The Keesler App has been updated with an FAQ and helpful links.
